The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) recently announced its approval of Dow’s Enlist Duo™ herbicide for use in additional states. A key component of the innovative Enlist™ Weed Control System, Enlist Duo with Colex-D™ Technology is the only herbicide to combine the proven performance of glyphosate with new 2,4-D choline for exceptional weed control in corn and soybeans.
The label for Enlist Duo now includes federal registration in many of the key corn- and soybean-producing states. The newest additions are Arkansas, Kansas, Louisiana, Minnesota, Missouri, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma and North Dakota. The originally approved states — Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Ohio, South Dakota and Wisconsin — were included on the federal label when the EPA registered Enlist Duo for use with Enlist corn and soybeans in October 2014. Dow AgroSciences will continue to work closely with state regulatory authorities to obtain local approvals. Regulatory approvals are pending for Enlist cotton.
Dow AgroSciences will launch Enlist Duo in conjunction with a stewarded introduction of Enlist corn and seed production of Enlist soybeans in 2015. With recent announcement, growers in key production areas soon will have access to the new herbicide technology. The company continues to work with the EPA to further expand the list of states on the federal label.
